Great Dpbours 2007-03-10 22:32

Hi Harry,

I'm wondering what you were actually constructing in Haarlem ;-).
The sky is beautiful you got here! Quite threatening.

The mill was built in 1978 on the old Goκ Vrouw tower. Choosen was to build it on an existing tower to get it as high as possible to catch even the smallest breeze of wind. From 1930, the mill was not in use anymore because it got heavily damaged in a big storm. There were not only virtues of sticking so high above all the other buildings...
After not having been used for 2 years, it burns down in 1932. The cause of the fire has never been established. I would not rule out that it might have been hit by lightning.

Greetings, Dennis

Default To Dpbours: HR AVI

Hi Dennis
I am working at the waste incineration plant on westport, the HR AVI is expanding with 2 new boilers. I am still here for at least a couple of months more.
Thanks for stopping by.
Harry
